Dirty Projectors – “Impregnable Question”

“Impregnable Question” is one of the sweetest songs on Dirty Projectors’ last record, 2012′s Swing Lo, Magellan. And now, it has a weirdly sweet music video. Featuring long takes of a man running on a highway–alongside gorgeous natural imagery–and a woman carrying big buckets of Mountain Dew, the two finally converge in what appears to be quite the fateful moment. Awwww, love!

Swing Lo, Magellan is out now on Domino. Here’s our review of it:

Stream the New Blondes Album

When I first ran into the music of Blondes last year through their self-titled release on RVNG Intl., I thought the house duo had plenty of grooves. However, things fell a little flat when it came to interesting sounds.

The duo seems to be making more of an effort to explore textures, effects, and noise on their latest collection of tracks, though. Blondes and RVNG have seen fit to upload Swisher onto YouTube, and you can cream the whole thing via the embed above. Enjoy!

Antwon – “Helicopter”

West Coast rapper Antwon drops a video for one of the better tracks from his Fantasy Beds mixtape, which came out last year. He dropped another one recently, too.

The video ain’t much but clips of Antwon chillin’ with friends against some Steve McQueen car chase scenes, but the stellar beat and ‘Twon’s beefy voice on this track are more than deserving of some visuals to help raise its visibility. Enjoy!

Everything Everything – “Cough Cough”

Everything Everything absolutely oozes personality on this track way back from August 2012.

This is a song worth going back to, it begins with a very unique vocal build up that develops into some truly great harmonies. Not only are the harmonies great, but the lead vocalist it perfectly eccentric and delivers an astonishing vocal performance. You can clearly see in the video that this Manchester band has put a lot of heart in their music, the video shows them beating on giant tribal drums while stock political footage intersects. There are also great transitions from black and white to color matching up with the music. Of course in a video the passion can be faked, but not in the music and it definitely has it from the vocals down to the frantic synthesizers.

Kiran Leonard – “Dear Lincoln”

A music video from multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Kiran Leonard. The tune comes from the newly remixed and mastered version of his Bowler Hat Soup album. Give a full listen to the album here.

My Bloody Valentine- Loveless

CLASSICS WEEK: My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless. Even 20 years after its initial release, this album still thrives as one of the strangest auditory experiences in rock and pop. Kevin Shields and company truly came together with a sonically surreal album here that still has modern experimentalists intrigued.

King Crimson- In the Court of the Crimson King

CLASSICS WEEK: Decades after its release, In the Court of the Crimson King still stands tall as one of the greatest and most relevant progressive rock albums ever.

Madvillainy- Madvillain

CLASSICS WEEK: With eccentric rhymes and colorful beats, Madvillain’s Madvillainy is easily one of my favorite hip hop albums ever. A modern classic.

EPIC YUNOREVIEW OF SADNESS!

This is the longest YUNOREVIEW I’ve ever done. Not sure I’ll ever wanna do something like this again, ha! Well, anyway, if a particular artist who released an album, EP, or mixtape earlier this year somehow did not make this list, then you might as well give up hope. I can’t review everything–even if the new Taylor Swift album ain’t bad. I’ll leave it to you to form your own opinions on any releases I have missed.

Speaking of opinions, I wouldn’t take mine in this video all that seriously. I’m pretty indifferent toward most of the albums on this list. Some are very good, and I regret missing them, but others just needed to be avoided to maintain a “normal” mental state. However, I’m not implying that music reviewing is driving me to the brink! I assure you I had very little sanity to begin with.

Thank you for watching! I love you! I wish you the best. I hope your holidays are great, too. Here are the artists that get mentioned in this video:
